Mangilao mAb Clinic to Close Temporarily Starting Monday
Beginning Monday, January 24, 2022, the monoclonal antibody (mAb) therapy clinic at the Mangilao Senior Citizens Center in Mangilao will temporarily close until further notice. This is due to a shortage of patient courses of Regen-COV. A shipment of Regen-COV is expected to arrive on Guam within the next few days.
 
The Mangilao mAb clinic will reopen when supplies become available. An announcement will be made to the public. 
 
GMHA mAb Infusion Services Temporarily Suspended
The Guam Memorial Hospital has suspended its monoclonal antibody (mAB) infusion services until further notice, due to a shortage in supply of Regen-COV, as experienced island-wide. GMH’s infusion services were on a referral-basis only and as such, the hospital is alerting the medical community, who would otherwise be referring patients. GMH will begin infusion services as soon as reasonably feasible with supply.
